After the hopes of Democrats were dashed by some of the results in the elections Tuesday, Hollywood movie star Alyssa Milano blamed an odd conspiracy theory out of frustration.
Milano said that she had no choice but to blame the Green Party and believe that Russians were using the third party alternative in order to swing elections against the Democrats.
"You know what sucks?" she tweeted. "Because of our unwillingness to pass policy that protects our election integrity, I immediately think the Green Party votes tonight are Russian meddling."
"Why else would anyone cast a protest vote in Ohio when there’s so much at stake?" Milano added rhetorically.
The actress added a hashtag indicating she was referring to the special election for Ohio's 12th district in the U.S. House of Representatives. The very competitive race ended with a narrow victory for the Republican, Troy Balderson, although the Democrat in the race, Danny O'Connor, had not conceded.
Milano retweeted a video of Democratic strategist Cornell Belcher berating the Green Party voters for helping crater the Democrats' chances in the pivotal election.
I know that the Democratic party isn't perfect, but these elections are too close for you to not make a choice between the lesser of two evils. And in the end you know very well that there's a party that doesn't believe in climate change, and a party that embraces science.
We cannot allow the party that doesn't believe in climate change to continue to win by these narrow margins.
People voting third party and we saw it in the protest vote in 2000 in the last presidential election, 2016, which I think swung the election away from Hillary [Clinton], I hear you Green Party, I hear you're not happy with Democrats, but at this point, you have to make a choice between the lesser of two evils.
Milano also posted an article reportedly exposing a Republican operative campaigning as a Green Party candidate in order to siphon votes from the Democratic candidate.
Milano isn't the only Hollywood actress to allege bizarre conspiracy theories about Republicans. Rosie O'Donnell told CNN's Chris Cuomo that President Donald Trump's rallies were fake and that the participants were paid to attend.
Others on the left were denouncing Green Party voters for the loss in Ohio, despite the fact that the margin of votes for the Republican victor was greater than the number of votes for the Green Party.
MSNBC contributor Joyce White Vance was one such voice.
"Tonight’s election in Ohio 12 serves as a reminder that we are not a parliamentary system of government," tweeted Alene, "so votes for the Green Party made by people who believe the Democratic Party is not progressive enough are in effect votes for the Republican candidate."
